Tickets Now On Sale for Exclusive Luncheon and Discussion with Monica Kaufmann, Featuring World’s Largest Paraiba Tourmaline

February is typically associated with romance — marriage proposals, jewelry, engagement rings and, once every four years on Leap Day, women traditionally take the lead. To that end, it’s fitting that on February 29, world-renowned Palm Beach jeweler Monica Kaufmann will lead a luncheon and conversation about jewelry at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County’s exclusive It’s What You See luncheon.

Tickets are now on sale for the luncheon, part of the It’s What You See lecture series presented by the Cultural Council. Tickets are $125 each. Proceeds will support the Cultural Council’s ongoing programs for and about artists in Palm Beach County.

Kaufmann is president of Kaufmann de Suisse in Palm Beach, the Montreal-based fine luxury jeweler and five-time winner of the coveted Diamond International Award for Excellence in Jewelry Design. She will discuss jewelry’s significance as art and as an investment. Guests will have the opportunity to see her one-of-a-kind designs as well as the “Paraiba Star of the Ocean Jewels” necklace, which holds the Guinness World Record for largest Paraiba Tourmaline at 191.87 carats.
